"Before finding this book I was unaware of Bruce Lee's work in Philosophy. I am a Phil major myself, and I found the balance of western and eastern thought refreshing. A lot of Philosophy is grouped in long wordy essays that make it somewhat a stratified ivory tower type of field. Lee's book is organzied in easy to read, simple koans, proverbs and sayings. To one who has read a great deal of Buddhism, Psychology, or Eastern thought, they may read a lot of what they may have already read. But this book doesn't disappoint, there are some quality nuggets in here. Bruce says much in few words, his eloquence can be stunning & profound. Although I'm not really into martial arts or anything like that I always revered him in a certain light, in fitness, command, and eloquence. Worth a read, I have new respect for Bruce Lee." -Don Gunn from Amazon.com
